FRIDAY, MARCH 7, 1975 

Japan of today explored 

by Trudi Berlin '77 

Over 100 people altendcd the 
.vmposium "Japan — End of the 
Miracle?" held last Friday and 
Saturday in Jewell Auditorium. 
Sponsored under a grant from the 
tovernment of Japan, the sym- 
posium was organized by 
Margaret Latterly, Coordinator 
f Special Events, and Martin 
Bronfenbrenner. Kenan Professor 
of Economics at Duke University. 
w ho was a Stone-Davis gucsl-in- 
residence while teaching 
Economics here last semester. 

Gerald Curtis, head of the East 
Asian Institute at Columbia 
University spoke on Japanese- 
American Relations in the open- 
ing discussion Friday night. 
Saturday's program included a 
panel on "The Economics or 
Japan" led by Professor Bronfen- 
brenner and Eleanor Hadley from 
the General Accounting Office in 
Washington. D.C. "Japanese 
Women and Political Action" was 
addressed by Dorothy Robins 
Mowrv. a Foreign Service Infor- 
mation Officer in the United 
Slates Information Agency, and 
"The Social Development of 
Japan" by Herbert Passin. 
Professor of Sociology in the 
School of International Affairs at 
Columbia University. All of 
Saturday's speakers concluded 
the symposium in a joint panel on 
"Japan — Tomorrow". 

The speakers were alternately 
introduced by Carolyn Elliot from 
Wellesley's new Women's Center 
and Dr. Paul A Cohen, an Edith 
Siix Wasserman Professor of 
Asian Studies in the History 
I Department. 

Gerald Curtis noted that 
I Japanese-American relations, like 
I Japan's foreign policy, have 
changed and become strained in 
I the last few years as Japan has in- 
creased her stature in the world 
community. For the first quarter 
century alter World War II. the 
United States was almost the only 
factor in Japan's foreign policy 
considerations. Now, with her in- 
vestments in Brazil and her oil 

related dealings with the MiddL 
Eastern countries, Japan's scope 
has widened. The "Nixon shocks" 
which included the export em- 
bargo of soybeans to Japan, the 
revaluation of the Yen. and the 
nightmare of the unannounced 
acceptance of mainland China led 
to Japan's loss of confidence in 
the United States. 

Japan is about the size of 
California, with one half the pop- 
ulation of the United States. Her 
Gross National Product (GNP) is 
third highest in the world, out- 
ranked only by the Soviet Union 
and the U.S. After the war. Japan 
elected GNP growth over more 
personal standard of living im- 
provements. Now the Japanese 
are slowing down their galloping 
GNP growth and concentrating 
more on housing, public utilities 
and the like. 

Japan's women, like Japan 
herself, are coming into their own 
on the political scene. Ms. Mowry 
outlined three main stages 
characterizing the Japanese 
women since 1945: the appren- 
ticeship stage, when the vote and 
right to political participation 
were granted : the Retreat period 
of the 1950's and 60's when there 
was a wide reassessment of values 
and goals for life; and the 
Reassertion of Women in the late 
I960's and 70's, when the women 
bombarded civil movements and 
the election scene with their new 
democratic awareness, desire for 
self-fulfillment and consumer con- 
cern. Now. the consumer 
movements (shimmin undo) are 
going strong, and opinions are 
collected from many sides in most 
political arenas 

Mr. Passin. in his lecture, out- 
lined five explanations for Japan's 
new image: I) the change in the 
relative weight of Japan in the 
world as seen in its increased 
economic involvement and growth 
within the world community 2) 
the growth of education. In 1946 
there were 80.000 university 
students: today there are 1.7 
million. The percentage of college 
age people in college is 30%. se- 

cond only to the United States at 
50%, and far ahead of Europe. 
This education has contributed to 
disaffection with many traditional 
institutions, resulting in less iden- 
tification with industry and a rise 
of the non-political parly. Mr. 
Passin also cited the 3) spread of 
new values of democratization as 
evidence in the careful attention 
paid to consumer movements and 
different points of view in the 
decision-making process. 4) con- 
sequences of affluence: fewer 
villages and agricultural workers, 
fewer people for menial jobs, 
pollution ... 5) an increasing 
awareness to outside world. The 
new generation is finding that they 
share closer bonds with their 
foreign peers than with older 
Japanese generations. Styles, fads 
and popular movements engulf 
Japan just like the Western 

Japan, like the rest of the 
world, is having problems with in- 
flation, pollution and business 
failures. Her future has to be one 
of interdependence, so she must 
maintain harmonious relations 
wiih the world community to sus- 
tain her supply line for natural 
resources. Experimentation with 
solar and nuclear energy arc un- 
der way. It is probable Japan will 
emerge in a new role in world 
technology — no longer the im- 
itator, but the exporter of 
technology and new ideas.

Professor Robert Dalzell. direc- 
tor of American Civilization at 
Williams College, addressed 
Wellesley faculty and students on 
the topic "American character 
and experience through 
Autobiography: the lives of" Ben 
Franklin and Lucy Larcom," on 
February 27. 

Dalzell stated. "The purpose of 
the course is not to summarize, 
but rather to acquaint the student 
fairly intimately with the lives or 
15 or 16 Americans and to discuss, 
what the American experience 
meant to each of them." 

Dalzell then turned to the sub- 
ject of Benjamin Fanklin He 
noted that the Franklin 
autobiography is divided into two 

parts. Dalzell stated that the firs 
par, of the book deals with wha 

America. "He is blatantly telling 
us what to do." contended 


With regard to Franklin s 
success, Dalzell continued. 
"Franklin does not mean to have 
us think that he is rare. He leaves 
us to think that anybody can do 
this." According to Dalzell, 
Franklin believed that the 
American society promised a 
chance to attain freedom, virtue 
and power for every person. 

Dalzell next discussed Lucy 
Lurcom's autobiography entitled 
A New England Girlhood.

Ms. Adams initiated the Alumnae 
Achievement Awards during her 
administration at Wellesley. The 
program was planned by the 
Wellesley Alumnae Association

meet with women who have 
achieved outstanding success in 
their field.

on campus 

Cambridge Rape Crisis Centers, a 
visiting counseling program run 
by Boston College, and two psy- 
chologists from Beth Israel 
Hospital in Boston. 

In a presentation lasting an 
hour and a half, the panel discuss- 
ed all aspects of rape lis legal 
definition, its nature, its victims 
and its results, judicial and per- 
sonal. The whole panel agreed 
that the crime of rape is not a sex- 
ual one committed in the heat of 
passion, nor a selective one that 
only happens to "other women" 
who ask for it. The audience gas- 
ped at the statistic that the 
youngest reported rape victim was 
eight months old. 

Following the discussion, there 
was a question and answer period. 
The suggestions for the prevention 
of rape were that one should avoid 
traveling alone, check any car 
before getting in. and remain alert 
in any situation. The advice given 
for anyone attacked was to stay 
calm and look for a chance to get 
away, but to be careful about 
provoking the rapist into hurting 
you. The panel also agreed that, if 
you are raped, you should go to a 
hospital and the police in order to 
take care of any injuries, or possi- 
ble VD or pregnancy.

In Our Opinion 

Cutback decisions show 
Poor Policy making process 

The recent cutbacks by the College in the Counseling 
Office and the Black Studies Department necessitated, 
according to College President Barbara Newell, by major 
budget limitations, have created a major uproar by 
students, faculty and administration. 

This action by the College administration is disturbing 
to many, not only because of the substance of the action 
(that is, the elimination of the Counseling Office and the 
creation of tenure tension in the Black Studies depart- 
ment) but also because of the policy making process in- 

The situation is all too familiar to anyone who recalls 
some of the major policy decisions and subsequent stu- 
dent outcry of last academic year: the energy crisis clos- 
ing of the college in January; the revision of the rooming 
policy; and the shutdown of the dining halls. All of these 
actions have one characteristic in common with the most 
recent cutback move: the process by which the decision 
was reached was unclear and apparently detached from 
those it would affect most. The students at this college 
can not be expected to passively accept any and all 
decisions handed down by the Administration without 
questioning the planning and rationale behind the move. 

In the case of the Counselor/Black Studies decisions 
some major questions have been left unanswered. The 
students have the right and the need to know: 

1. Who is on the committees that decide these issues? 

2. What input was received? Were there complete 
evaluations of the Counseling Office and Black 
Studies department done? Were opinions solicited 
from students, faculty and administrators? 

3. What alternatives, if any, were considered? 

4. Why was nothing known of the consideration of 
these moves (while they were being considered) by 
the College Community? 

The College has the means and the obligation to keep 
the students informed of the process of its policy making. 

When the administration recognizes this responsibility 
and makes its decisions in a process warranting respect, 
only then will the content of its decisions be regarded for 
their own value. 

New Residence Office policy 
Warrants commendation 

The Resident Policy Committee decision to have the 
finalized rooming contract drawn up and distributed to 
■he students before the one hundred dollar deposit 
necessary to reserve a room for next year is due, should 
be commended. Last year, the residence contract was 
mailed to the students' home to be signed by her parents 
during the summer, six months after the non-refundable 
rooming deposit had been paid. 

This action by the committee alleviates the somewhat 
backward business situation of having a student agreeing, 
in effect, by paying her money, to a residence agreement 
whose terms were undisclosed by the college until well 
after she had paid her money. When the terms of the con- 
tract were finally made known, the student had but two 

1 . Accept the contract, sign it. and live in the dorm, or 

2. Not accept the contract, live off-campus and lose 
her SI 00 deposit. 

The student is now given the chance to review the con- 
tract before committing her money. 

Hopefully, this decision, along with the revised resi- 
dent contract, shows a move on the part of the Residence 
Office toward an effort to present all the information 
regarding rooming to the students at a reasonable time. 

NEWS would further suggest the possibility of for- 
mulating the rooming policy (lottery system, dorm-class 
distribution) at the same time that the contract and 
deposit are due; thereby providing all pertinent informa- 
tion to the student, before a decision is made on her part. 

Letters to the Editor 

Stop U.S. involvement in Viet Nam 

To the Editor 

Despilc how little we hear of it, 
Vietnam and the catalogue of ac- 
companying horrors, are still very 
much with us. The headlines may 
be smaller, and the news reports 
on page 4 instead of page I, but 
the war that has been "legally" 
over for 2 years continues, just as 
American involvement — 
economic, military, and otherwise 
continues. For many of us, "Viet- 
nam" has become one endless 
cliche. We tire of the empty 
rhetoric, of nameless faces and 
faceless names, of wire photos of 
shelled landscapes and maimed 
victims (yes, even that.) But to 
think that Vietnam is behind us, 
that the U.S. has done all that it 
can possibly do to end the fighting 
and to end American aid and 
monetary assistance is truly a 
gross misconception. The policy 
of Secretary of State Kissinger, 
and that of the Administration 
(read Ford and/or Nixon) has 
been to deliberately prevent any 
real reconciliation between the 
various factions in Vietnam by 
refusing to abide by the rules of 
the Paris Peace Agreements, and 
even by going so far as to deceive 
the American public about the ac- 
tual text of the Peace Agreements. 
This is not more "empty 

rhetoric". It is the truth, for 
anyone who cares to read the Pen- 
tagon Papers or the assortment of 
other documents that outline the 
extent of U.S. involvement in In- 

President Ford is asking 
Congress to appropriate an ad- 
ditional S300 million in aid to 
South Vietnam and S220 million 
to prop up the corrupt Thieu and 
Lon Nol regimes respectively. 
What we are witnessing is a blind, 
one-way commitment on the part 
of the Administration to maintain 
the present state of affairs in In- 
dochina. It is time that the U.S. 
got out — completely out — and 
left the Vietnamese and Cam- 
bodians to settle their own con- 
flicts, which — more than likely 
— they would have settled long 
ago. had not the U.S. seen fit to

Chemistry 103 Q Course 
Scored by student 

To the Editor: 

Last semester, many of us 
enrolled in Chemistry 103, section 
O- In taking this course, some of 
us were considering a future in 
chemistry, otheres were thinking 
of medical schools, and a few 
thought of the course as a way to 
fulfill a lab requirement. Despite 
different reasons for taking the 
course, most of us had formed the 
same impression at the end of the 
semester: we thought very little of 

One wonders how much the 
chemistry professors could have 
thought about it. The numerous

To the Editor: 

Ms. Seiberl's letter regarding 
Chemistry 103 last semester has 
been brought to the attention of 
the Chemistry 103 staff. We 
would like to provide News 
readers with some additional in- 
formation. Chemistry 103 was 
offered for the first time last 
semester. In any new course, es- 
pecially one with a large enroll- 
ment, problems develop which 
become obvious to both staff and 
students. This semester, for exam- 
ple, wc have chosen not to use 
Eastman's text in Chemistry 104, 
the continuation of Chemistry 
103, or in our second offering of 
Chemistry 103. In addition, the 
wide diversity of student 
backgrounds in chemistry has led 
us to propose a new course for 
next fall, Chemistry 100. to aid 
the less well-prepared student. 

All of our courses arc con- 
tinually evolving. For example, 
favorable student response in the 
past has led us to integrate in- 
creasingly the use of computers in 
our introductory courses. Un- 
doubtedly our experience with In- 
troductory Chemistry this 
semester will result in additional 
improvements in the future. Such 
improvements are not brought 
about by inaccurate and subjec- 
tive assertions.

faults were glaring. Although 
Eastman, the author of the text, 
covered a wealth of material in the 
book, he lacked the one ability 
one would expect a chemist to 
have: the ability to explain. As an 
example I cite Eastman's tor- 
turous explanation of a gram- 
equivalent weight, which sent too 
many students to other books in 
search of a workable definition of 
what should have been an elemen- 
tary concept. 

One can understand how the 
cap-and-gowned chemist, isolated 
from the ignorant mass, might 
have paged through this book and 
iiirmc.l i favorable impression of 
it: the basic material is second 
nature to him and needs no ex- 
planation. However, this over- 
sight is unpardonable in a 
professor, whose /ire/ responsibili- 
ty is to his students and their 
education: his main concern 
should not be how much informa- 
tion is conveyed, but how clearly 
it is conveyed. If a professor 
should find himself saddled with a 
poor text, he should try to rectify 
the faults of the book in his lec- 
tures: he does not do as the three 
lecturers of this course did and 
simply magnify the faults by giv- 
ing piece-meal, unorganized, 
poorly thought out and poorly 
delivered lectures. 

The failure of this course is ob- 
vious. On two of the three hourlies 
administered, fifty percent con- 
stituted an above C grade. Con- 
sidering the content of the 
hourlies. grades of this nature do 
not even suggest a passing ac- 
quaintance with the material, let 
alone an above average ability to 
apply it. 

It is pathetic and rcgretable 
thai courses of such miserable 
quality exist on the Wellesley 
campus; quite frankly, one ex- 
pects much better from this 
school, in view of its reputation 
and cost, There are many ways to 
improve Chemistry 103. such as 
changing the book and reducing 
the size of the class. However, the 
real problem lies with the 
professors, and it is to be hoped 
that better judgement on their 
parts in teaching, and better 
judgement on the college's part in 
assigning courses to professors, 
will be shown in the future.

Polk decision 

To the Editor: 

The concern over Don Polk's 
termination as Human Relations 
Counselor is not restricted to - 
students or to the minority com- 
munity. I personally have referred 
a dozen office workers to Don for 
assistance with personal problems 
which had not been or could not 
be solved through other channels. 
Don was able to alleviate several 
of these problems, and in all cases 
his mediation led to greater un- 
derstanding, lessened bitterness, 
and enhanced sensitivity. 

Don is a remarkably fair, 
patient and persistent person. He 
retains his good humor and 
directness no matter how 
frustrating the circumstances. His 
twin jobs as Human Relations 
Counselor and as Executive Of- 
ficer of the Commission on Com- 
munity Life at times require him 
to state uncomfortable facts or to 
maintain unpopular positions. 
Don has always done this 
courteously, firmly, and face to 
face, although he lacks the protec- 
tion of tenure or of a union. Is he 
perhaps being asked to pay the 
price of the messenger bearing the 
unwelcome news? 

Don's termination has been 
rationalized not on cornpclencc or 
mi worth to the community but on 
a comparison ofdiir expenses for 
"counselling services" with those 
of sister colleges. Since, however, 
there seems to be disagreement as 
in what constitutes "counselling 
services" (one definition includes 
the deans, the financial aid office, 
and career services, as well as the 
psychiatrists, house mothers, and 
the counselling office), it's hard 
nol to wonder what we are actual- 
ly comparing. But if we grant that 
Wellesley probably spends more 
for some services than com- 
parable colleges do, ought we also 
to inquire what she spends less on? 

For example, the Wednesday 
Luncheon Discussion Group has 
twice been told that the College 
spends less on pensions, 
educational and medical benefits 
for the office workers, its lowest- 
paid employees, than do com- 
parable colleges. But if Don is 
forced out. one more voice for

Coverage by 
News inaccurate 

To the Editor; 

We, the members of the Ethos 
Ad Hoc Committee feel that | as i 
week's articles concerning tenure 
and budget cuts in counseling 
were inaccurate in their coverage 
of the facts. After having done in- 
depth research into the subject 
and having spoken with such ad- 
ministration officials as Dean 
Ilchman and President Newell, * ( 
find the News' presentation of the 
facts to be greatly distorted. 

We feel, that in all fairness to 
the entire community, the /Vem 
must continue its_ investigation 
and relay a more" accurate and 
complete picture of the controver- 
sy in next week's issue. 

Ethos Ad Hoc Committee 

Decision policy 

To the Editor: 

For those students and faculty 
who have not felt it necessary to 
become involved in the protest 
against the decision to eli- 
minate the counseling services 
provided by Donald Polk and 
Carol Baird. as well as the tenure 
decision in the Black Studies 
Department because it is felt that 
these issues pertain only to 
minority students and to those 
who have sought counseling ser- 
vices, there are larger issues at 
hand. The major protest is against 
the "closed door" policy 
employed by the, administration 

Why in these two cashes werendt 
the parties themselves as we|(,4s 
those affected, included in the 
decision-making process? In the 
case of the closing of Claflin and 
Shafer dining rooms, the College 
did attempt to determine the im- 
pact of this decision on (he 
students. There were discussion 
groups, evaluations, and question- 
naires which polled studenls' 
opinions. Why was there no such 
effort made on the part of the ad- 
ministration concerning the 
tenure and counseling decisions? 
Where do the priorities of the 
College administration lie? Now 
that we are in an economic crisis 
and the budget must be cut, (he 
College no longer values sludenl 
and faculty input. As members of 
this college community wc refuse 
to be so excluded from decisions 
on matters so crucial to our well- 
being and existence on this cam- 
pus. Shouldn't you? 

If so. come to Harambee House 
on Monday March 10. 10 a.m. to 
discuss these issues.

But the mood today has chang- Washington and seventy out in the 

ed dramatically. Candidates in field, "Young Voters For The 

hot pursuit of the youth vote arc President" claimed over 125 000 

traveling the college circuit and 
eagerly, almost obsessively, seek- 
ing out issues that appeal to the 
young. The major Democratic 
contenders for the presidential 
nomination have all hired youth 
coordinators, and even Scoop 
Jackson is planning a youth cam- 

Two things happened to bring 
about this shift in attitudes. 
First McCarthy captivated the 
college campuses in 1968, and 
soon, there wasn't a politi- 
cian who didn't dream fondly 
about inspiring his own 
"Children's Crusade." 

Then the 26th Amendment 
went into effect in 1971 and the 
prospect of 25 million newly en- 
franchised voters was so tan- 
talizing to political strategists that 
there was a great rush to capture 
the "youth vote." 

As the 1972 election ap- 
proached the speculation and con- 
troversy over the group's potential 
impact grew. Political analysts 
like Richard Scammon and Ben 
Watlenberg predicted that young 

active volunteers and 90 
organizations on college cam- 
puses. The "Young Voters" work- 
ed hard to recruit volunteers and 
when there weren't enough, they 
at least created the appearance of 
having enough. For example, 
when the "Young Voters" 
couldn't find enough Florida 
Young Republicans for Nixon's 
Miami convention appearances, 
they flew in 1,500 volunecrs from 
all over the country and 
transported them to the Miami 
convention — so that when Nixon 
arrived at the airport, he could 
look at the mob of screaming, 
cheering, footslomping young 
people and say, "Based on what I 
see and feel here tonight, I believe 
we are going to win the youth 

As it turned out. neither side 
really won. Instead of voting for 
McGovern by a three-to-one ratio 
as McGovern had hoped, the 18- 
25 year olds split their vote evenly 
between the two candidates — 
with Nixon winning by a slight 
margin, 52% to 48%. 

Classroom species 

Kristin SerVaas took last semester ofT to be State Director of Richard 
Lugar's youth campaign for the U.S. Senate against Birch Bayh. 

"After McCarthy captured the college campuses in 1968, there wasn't 
i politician who didn't dream fondly about inspiring his own 'Children's registered, compared with 40 

registered early in the campaign, 
the McGovern forces concen- 
trated on non-partisan registra- 
tion of students and young people 
in the working force. But when the 
McGovern registrars got to the 
campuses, they found that 80% of 
the students had already 

a. of 


people were too diverse a group to 
vote as a block, and that they 
could not therefore, influence (he 
election. On the other hand. 
McGovcrn's key strategists 
counted heavily on the youth vote 
to win the election. 

"Nixon made two fantastic tac- 
tical blunders." McGovcrn's Fred 
Dutton boasted early in the cam- 
paign. "He approved the 18-year 
old vote and the new registration 

Dutton assumed that he could 
get 75-80% oftti'e' 18-25 year-old 
group to'tegister and vote. He 
also assumed that three-fourths.of 
these voters would favor 
McGovern. This, he calculated, 
would give McGovern a margin of 
8 million youth votes over Nixon, 
and would be just enough to edge 
out a victory. 

The Republicans were much 
more skeptical about the impact 
of the youth vote, but at Nixon's 
insistence they set out to "beat 
McGovern at his own game." 
Irritated by suggestions that he 
wasn't as attractive to the young 
voters as McGovern, Nixon 
poured $1,000,000 into a slick, 
well-organized "Young Voters 

" At the same time, the "Young 
Voters hor The President" 
organization — in spite of its huge 
budget — was unable to attract as 
many young volunteers as the 
McGovern forces. 
" Gilbert Youth Research Center 
of Manhattan, New York, 
reported that of all the young peo- 
ple between 18 and 25 who work- 
ed actively on a campaign, 48% of 
them worked for McGovern (the 
rest worked for congressional can- 
didates, mostly democrats) while 
only 17,?% worked for Nixon. 
Another study, done by U.S. 
News and World Report also 
noticed that the young people who 
supported McGovern were, es- 
pecially vehement in their denun- 
ciation of Nixon and were twice as 
outspoken about their comments. 
Thus, even though the youth vote 
went slightly for Nixon. 
McGovern was still identified as 
the candidate of the youth. 

The young McGovern forces 
suffered the worst setback. Not 
only did their massive drive to 
register 75-80% of this group fail, 
it probably backfired. Making 
their assumptions on the fact that 
there was heavy support for 
McGovern among the youth 

the non-college youth. In other 
words, the group that gave 
McGovern the greatest support — 
college students, registered early 
for the primaries — leaving a 
"target group" that, as Gallup 
pointed out in August of 1972. 
was 46% to 43% in favor of Nixon. 
Scammon's statement that "be- 
ing young is nothing more than 
chronological fact" proved 
correct. Not only did the youth 
register in fewer numbers than 

any other age group, they failed to 
vote as a monolithic bloc. 

Yet in 1975. candidates are still 
pursuing the youth vote. 
Democrats with no apparent 
appeal to the young people are 
expecting the same kind 
youth support that McGovern en- 
joyed in 1972. For example, when 
Jimmy Carter was asked how he 
planned to win the Democratic 
nomination, he replied "The 
voting people are going to win me 
the presidency in 1976."

young people are so adept at displaying."

Classroom B.S. — we've all 
witnessed it and most of us have 
practiced it. Although teachers 
are tuned-in on the technique, 
students nevertheless resort to the 
same tricks. Do you know (or are 
you) any of the following. 

Ms. Insight: Most commonly 
found in foreign-language classes. 
She has cither lived in the country 
for ten years (still taking language 
102) or she visits there frequently. 
Always anxious to interject per- 
sonal vignettes which are usually 
irrelevant to the discussion. This 
is her way of teaching the class. In 
history or political science classes, 
she's the one whose parents are 
lawyers. Often undermines the 

Echo: Repeats what the teacher 
or what the previous student said. 
She usually hasn't done the 
reading or just likes to hear 
herself talk. Agreeing with the 
teacher's point of view, she hopes 
to score big. "Echo" should stay 
in a canyon or on the label of 

Wellesley Webster: Big words 
are impressive, aren't they? But 
some are better on paper. W. 
Webster doesn't care, just as long 
as she can use them. Foreign 
words are her favorite. 

Leave it to Beaver: She has a 
repetoire of material. Sometimes 
labeled as the ideal student. 
Always sits in the front. Beaver 
bakes every brownie point and 
picks every apple to be polished 
Above and beyond the assigned 

work, she does suggested readings 
in addition. She turns in papers 
early and reminds teacher of up- 
coming assignments. Also asks in- 
volved questions right before class 
ends. Laughs at every joke the 
teacher says. Eddy Haskell should 
come to the rescue ... 

Procrastinu: Always late — to 
class, with assigned work, with 
everything. She doesn't hesitate to 
ask for an extension. BUT. she 
usually makes better grades than 
the rest. Why? She has mastered 
the art of working under pressure. 
The dedicated student loses out to 
her. It isn't fair, is it? But neither 
was Watergate. 

Tab Hunter: Arrives to class 
with coffee, yogurt, or most com- 
monly Tab. She distracts the class 
with her swallows and slurping. 
English majors often fall in this 
category. Often she stops at the El 
Table and arrives to class with 
goodies making the 70-minutc 
session a lunch hour. Huff and 
Puff can sympathize with her H. 
and P. talks nonsense, usually 
arguing with the teacher, while 
she blows long trails of smoke 
from her Marlboros. 

And finally we must not forget 
Deep Throat. She insists on being 
profound. Philosophy and psy- 
chology classes know her well. 
She picks up on every Freudian 
and Shakespearian implication. 
Each passage is particularly 
enlightening to her. She's un- 
popular in the classroom since she 
wastes so much time. Deep 
Throat did much better at the box 

It's too late for us!

Colleges throughout the coun- 
try are putting less stress on the 
Scholastic Aptitude tests and 
more on the student's high school 
record. A trend toward SAT dc- 
emphasizalion began when highly 
respected Bowdoin College made 
the lest optional in 1970. The 
college's action came when a 
faculty study disclosed that of 
four Rhodes Scholars Bowdoin 
had graduated in as many years, 
only one had reached the level of 
its median SAT scores — at thai 
time reportedly "in the 600's." 

Bowdoin's admission director 
was quoted as saying that the 
change had benefited many 
students, some who were "fine 
achievers but poor test-takers" 
and others who were "able 

scholars" like the student who 
"hud three test scores of 800 that 
he didn't bother to send" because 
lest scores didn't mean anything 
to him. 

Rollins College in New York 
has computed the correlation 
between the freshman year grade 
point average and the verbal SAT 
score of a sampling of the Class of 
'76. Noting that a "perfect" cor- 
relation would be "1.0," he ex- 
plained that results showed 
"some" correlation — a low 

This evidence supports the 
Hollins' Admissions Office's con-

record is the best predictor of

Students attend conference on education 

Editor's Nolc: Sharon Collins was 
one of Wcllesley's three delegates 
to the Undergraduate Conference 
on Education, and she writes of 
her experiences at the conference. 

by Sharon Collins '77 

During the weekend of 
February 21 - 23, nearly one hun- 
dred students from all over the 
United States participated in the 
Undergraduate Conference on 
Education at Harvard University. 
Each college or university which 
was invited to the Conference had 
the option of sending one or more 
delegates to Harvard for the 
three-day discussion marathon. 

The Conference officially open- 
ed on Friday evening with. 
speeches by Derek Bok, President 
of Harvard University, and 

damental values, ethics, and issues 
with which the student will be con- 
fronted in his or her life. 

Caspar Weinberger spoke 
about the Government's role in 
higher education. He feels that the 
Government should lead and en- 
courage institutions, but it should 
not impose upon them any 
solutions or rules. "For example," 
Weinberger staled, "the Govern- 
ment should conduct costly 
research on education which can- 
not be done by individual in- 
stitutions." Weinberger asserts 
that, although a four-year isola- 
tion in academics is nice, the real 
world cannot be totally ignored. 
He referred to the current glut of 
teachers and space-oriented scien- 
tists as examples of job categories 
where the reality of opportunities 
was not fully considered. In con-

students to work arduously in pulling together a course into a coherent 
whole in preparation for a final exam. " 

Three Welleslev students. Margaret-Ann Moran '76, Jean 
MacHarg '78, and Sharon Collins '77 (pictured from left to right 
above) attended the Undergraduate Conference on Education held at 
Harvard University. Among those speaking were Derek Bok, Presi- 
dent of Harvard University; and Caspar Weinberger, Secretary r 
Health, Education, and Welfare. 

An interview with 
Linny Little 

by Laura Becker '77 

College government president 
Linny Little's primary ex- 
tracurricular focus has changed 
from photography in high school, 
to sports as an underclasswoman. 
to college government as a junior 
and senior. 

Her first experience with 
college leadership and organiza- 
tion was being chairwoman of the 
Sophomore Ask-Me's for fresh- 
women orientation. Swim- 
ming three limes daily, diving, 
participating in the swim team 
.ind swim club, and a second year 
as co-head of the Wellesley 
lacrosse team helped fill already 
full days. Linny's experience as a 
sophomore Ask-Me increased an 
interest in group leadership and 
group dynamics. 

As a junior. Linny remained co- 
head of lacrosse, but gave up 
hours in the water for hours of 
meetings and being a resource 
person as co-chairwoman of the 
Vil Juniors. Apparently, the 
Sports Association, Academic 
Council meetings. Senate meet- 
ings and Vil Junioring expanded a 
desire to be in the know, and be a 
pari of on campus affairs. 

In response lo that S64.000 
question. "Why did you run?" 
Linny replied that she was con- 
vinced lhal CG president would be 
in the position to know more, do 
more, and be more instrumental 

in campus affairs. 

An average week entails fifteen 
hours of meetings (CG president 
is not necessarily a member of all) 
e.g. Senate, President's Advisory 
Council, the Calendar Com- 
mittee. Hunger Action group, . . . 
Homework for meetings, odd 
luncheons, time spent as student 
representative at alumnae func- 
tions, and a general resource per- 
son on campus varies. 

Linny finds life as CG president 
holds both high and low points. 
Giving speeches, chairing large 
meetings, a number of interesting 
people, and being constantly 
tested Linny cites as higher points. 
However, devoting herself to 
issues that take a great deal of 
time can make it hard to find time 
for herself, and as a result, per- 
sonal and academic life 
sometimes suffer. 

Linny found she was forced to 
choose a priority, either college 
government or her academic 

The choice was college govern- 
ment, which Linny believes to be a 
series of valuable learning ex- 
periences, many of which, 
although not gleaned from books, 
arc an excellent foundation for her 
career goals. 

Linny is an Art History major, 
and entered Wellesley thinking 
she might pursue art conservation 

Caspar Weinberger, Secretary of 
HEW. Bok spoke with regret 
about the extremely competitive 
situation which has evolved in our 
undergraduate institutions. There 
are too many students for too few 
places in graduate schools, and 
undergraduates arc plunged into a 
frantic, four-year scramble for 
high grades. 

"However." Bok said, "grades 
seem to be a necessary evil — they 
help to motivate students to work 
arduously in pulling together a 
course into a coherent whole in 
preparation for a final exam." In 
answer to the current student plea 
for greater relevance in course 
work, Bok told the audience that 
courses which focus on the press- 
ing social issues of the day are 
founded on the most fleeting of all 
knowledge. "In our rapidly 
changing world," he elaborated, 
"students must be taught to think 
with greater clarity and imagina- 
tion, skills which can be applied to 
constantly changing problems. 
These skills can often be subtly 
developed in courses which have 
little to do with current 

Bok enumerated four major 
functions of a liberal arts 
education: (I) to cultivate in the 
student a set of very general and 
widely applicable habits of 
thought and analysis to be used in 
almost any career, (2) to provide 
an environment' which assists 
students in making the big choice 
of a vocation, (3) to prepare 
students to live a full and rich life 
outside of their vocation, and (4) 
to provide discussion of fun- 

elusion, he called for "experimen- 
tation and innovation in higher 
education". He said, "Experimen- 
tation is a great source of strength 
in the United States — it 
energizes us as a people." 

On Saturday morning, student 
delegates met in various discus- 
sion groups. Group topics ranged 
from "Finances" to "Student 
Government" to "Academic 
Community" to "Curriculum". 
Each delegate was required to 
prepare, in advance of the 
Conference, a 5-15 page paper on 
a topic which could offer an in- 
teresting viewpoint on a relevant 
issue in higher education, as that 
issue pertains to his or her institu- 
tion. A delegate's paper provided 
guidelines for his or her group 

Wellesley's three delegates to 
the Conference were: myself, 
Margaret-Ann Moran '76, and 
Jean MacHarg '78. We each 
wrote a short paper under the 
general topic of "The Uniqueness 
of Wellesley is All-Female 
Institution". My paper focused on 
"Feminism at Wellesley".

I participated in the discussion 
group on "Women". All of the 
group members had written 
papers concerning women at their 
particular institution, find, since 
the only delegates who wrote 
about women were women, all of 

the group participants were 
women. We all agreed that this 
situation rather narrowed the 
perspective of the discussion. The 
absence of men in our group and 
the implications of such served as 
a thread of thought which ran 
through most of the discussion. 

Participants, concurred in the 
belief that a "men's liberation" 
must go hand-in-hand with the 
women's liberation movement, if

which can include both a family

society is trulky to benefit from 
role changes. Men must change so 
that they can fill some of the roles 
which women are vacating. The 
husband should not bear the 
whole burden of financially sup- 
porting (he family, and the wife 
should not bear the whole burden 
of raising the children and taking 
care of the home. From a 
humanistic viewpoint, there 
should be a sharing of the burden. 
To accomplish this societal 
change, women must be exposed 
to men who have changed roles, as 
much as men are exposed to 
"liberated" women; The seeds for 
change should be planted during 
one's college years through one's 
exposure to alternative life-styles. 
On Saturday afternoon, the 
"Women" group met with Kathy 
Wittom, Professor of Psychology 
at Harvard. Ms. Wittom is par-

loss of self-confidence as they near

Breaking into the Boys' Room — Minority women in business 

by Patricia Mell "75 

The stereotype of the business 
world is well known. It's a dog- 
eat-dog world where every and 
any man will step on his com- 
petitor's hands lo achieve one 
more step on the ladder of success 
and a key to the executive men's 

Until recently, women in- 
terested in the business world had 
little chance of making it past the 
secretarial pool. This was par- 
ticularly true for the black 

On Saturday, March I. 1975, a 
symposium, jointly sponsored by 
the Black Studies Department: 
Harambee House; the Economics 
Department and Career Services, 
was held to discuss the problems 
of black women aspiring to 
"break into the boy's room" of 
big business. The symposium was 
entitled "Black Women in 
Business: After the Vogue, What 

The Symposium, held at 
Harambee House, followed a 
luncheon at the College Club. The 
five speakers, all black women, 
were either working in some area 
of business or studying in a 
business related graduate or train- 
ing program. Each panelist spoke 
on a different topic in an effort to 
give a wide view of the oppor- 
tunities and pitfalls facing black 
women entering the business 

Rosalind Mathews, Vice Presi- 
dent of KGA Personnel Services 
(a personnel service specializing in 

placing blacks in contact with job 
opportunities), spoke first on the 
white businessman's attitude 
toward black women. Ms. 
Mathews reiterated the difficulty 
of black women trying to enter 
business in past years but at- 
tributed the rapid improvement of 
the businessman's attitude to 
pressure from the EEOC. Ms. 
Mathew's pointed out that many 
"companies arc in the position of 
losing government contracts if 
they discriminate against blacks 
in hiring." 

She continued by refuting cer- 
tain myths about a working 
women's "conflicting respon- 
sibilities — the job and the 
home." One such myth was the 
businessman's conception that the 
company was "wasting its time 
and money training a woman for 
an executive position when she 
would only leave lo have a 
family ." Ms. Mathews pointed lo 
statistics proving thai women "do 
not stay out of the labor force 
after pregnancy (8 weeks) any 
longer than do men after heart at- 
tacks or an attack of gout." 

One pitfall remaining to women 
in business is the discrepancy in 
pay between her salary and that of 
her colleague performing the 
same duties. Ms. Mathews stress- 
ed the importance of watching for 
this trap as well the trap of taking 
a secretarial position with the 
hope of rising in the company 
later. Ms. Mathews warned, 
"Once you're dubbed a secretary, 
you will always be a secretary." 

Judy Malvcaux, Ph. D. can- 

didate in economics at MIT, con- 
tinued the discussion with her 
views on the opportunities for 
black women in the field of 
economics. Ms. Malvcaux broke 
these opportunities into 4 basic 
options: the government; industry: 
research; and "academia." 

Ms. Malvcaux pointed out that 
most government agencies have 
economists on their staff. These 
economists design and run surveys 
for the most part. Large industries 
on the other hand, employ 
economists as consultants. These 
consultants work on the particular 
problems of that company alone. 

In research, an economist could 
be employed by a research firm 
and would possibly design 
research patterns for clients of the 

Other possibilities include 
government research and public 
interest research. Even though the 
topics in these areas could be the 
most stimulating, the "pay is very 

The fourth category is 
"academia." "Academia" em- 
bodies research but it would be 
research in the economists' chosen 
field. This does have its draw- 
backs, however. As Ms. 
Malvcaux points out. "Most Ph D 
economists spend the next 30 
years of their lives revising their 

Enid Hoyt Porter '74, a 
Management Trainee at Chase- 
Manhattan Bank, spoke on the 
transition between school and the 
business world. Ms. Porter stress- 
ed the freedom students possess at 

Wellesley. For instance: ". . . here 
you have the freedom to choose 
courses, to go home or to stay, to 
cat if you choose, and great ex- 
panses to walk in where and if you 
choose to do so ... and nobody 
tells you that you cannot do 

A program such as the one at 
Chase-Manhattan Bank, is noted 
for its intensity. The pay is good 
but the pressure is high. Ms. 
Porter spends 10-12 hours a day 
at the bank or doing bank work 
and attributed the high pressure to 
the fact that in such a training 
program, the trainee is "dealing 
with someone else's money and 
therefore, cannot be lax about ef- 
ficiency and achievement and re- 
main in the program." 

Even so, Ms. Porter, a liberal 
arts major, did say that Wellesley 
had prepared her for certain 
aspects of her career in business. 
Other students with MBA's etc. 
have an advantage in their 
familiarity with figures and exac- 
titude. On the other hand, 
"Wellesley leaches the student 
how to think logically and how to 
pull thoughts together. This type 
of thinking will put the trainee 
ahead when she must do original 
thinking in Ihe analysis of specific 
company problems and 

Lydia Gladney '71. the fourth 
panelist and a MBA candidate at 
Harvard, strongly advised the 
minority student to work, before 
entering business school. "Har- 
vard," said Ms. Gladney, "values 
he students' work experience." 

This is evidenced by the fact that 
80 - 90 percent of the entering 
class of Harvard's MBA program 
has had at least two years work 

Despite the tight structure of 
the program, its aim is to develop 
the students adaptibility to 
different business problems and 
situations. For this reason. Har- 
vard advocates the use of the case 
method. The student will typically 
be given three particular cases a 
day to analyze. The cases are real 
situations faced by actual cor- 
porations. The idea is to prompt 
the student to deduce the cor- 
poration's theory from the infor- 
mation at hand. 

According to Ms. Gladney, 
There is no right way or wrong 
way lo do anything, so the key lo 
success is in knowing how to con- 
vice others of your idea's 

Ms. Gladney continued by ex- 
plaining the work load at Har- 
vard. She pointed out the im- 
possibility of completing all the 
work assigned. "The trick is to 
learn how to do that which is im- 
portant. " 

Karen Williamson Zuniga '69 
concluded the panelists' discus- 
sion with her conceptions on "how 
to make it." Ms. Zuniga is a 
Marketing Analyst with Avon 
Products. Ms. Zuniga emphasized 
the importance of "self- 
knowledge" to a successful career 
in business. To "make it," a 
minority woman in particular 
must be willing to take a chance 
The black woman trying to get 

into business must "evaluate 
herself, make a decision, and go 
aggressively after it." 

After attaining a position, Ms. 
Zuniga stressed the importance of 
constantly rc-cvaluating it to see if 
it is indeed the position which will 
lead the woman to her goal. If it is 
not, she should look elsewhere. 

All five of the panelists warned 
the prospective minority business 
women against accepting "sit by 
the door" positions. Once in the 
position, the management may 
not allow them the responsibility 
necessary for advancement. 

The panelists also agreed that 
the day of black being attractive 
had passed. "Black women must 
sell their talents, not their color." 
and they must be sure of 
themselves and of what they want. 
As one of the panelists put it. 
"Psyche yourself up to what you 
are capable of doing and keep it 
that way. You can have doubts 
about them but not about

On Thursday. February 27. the 
Residence Policy Committee met 
for further discussion on spring 
rooming. Before addressing 
rooming, however, the committee 
considered the possibility of im- 
plementing a Centrex telephone 
system throughout the campus. 
This would involve installing a 
telephone in each room (the same 
setup that is in existence at both 
M.I.T. and Harvard). This would 
eliminate the need for both "in- 
side'' and "ou.iside" lines as the 
whole campus would be hooked 
up to a central system. The ap- 
proximate installation fee to the 
college would be S2000, with 
monthly rates for the students 
probably lower than what they 
presently pay: the system would 
lake one year to 18 months to in- 
stall. In addition, a five year 
guarantee would be needed from 
the college. A member of the

Lacombe ... The Torpid Mind 

by Anita Prince '76 

Depicted in this subtle, in- 
telligent film directed by Louis 
Malle is a teen-age boy's involve- 
ment with the Gestapo during 
World War II. Underlying this is 
a comment on the questioning, or 
lack of it. that lakes place before 
choosing sides in a political 
struggle — in this case a World 
War. The consequences of a 
choice at such a lime can be, to 
saj ihc least, grave Yet. in the 
case of Lucien (Pierre Blaise), the 
choice involves no more concen- 
trated thought or questioning than 
say. a casual decision to pick up a 
paperback book — on sale. 
Reflexive, impulsive, half 
Ihought-oul aclions seem to dirccl 
Lucien's life. 

The film "Lacombe. Lucien" is 
scl in provincial France during the 
summer and fall of 1944 when 
Germany's defeat appeared cer- 
tain Lucien, in his late leens. is 
wcakinc in a hospilul ward The 
cries of Ihe wounded cause him to 
turn toward ihe window where he 
sees a bird in a nearby tree sing- 
ing: he kills ii without motive or 
without attaching significance to 
the action. Next we see him pedal- 
ing on the road. His bicycle goes 
flat: he swears. "Meurlrc". hops 
off and begins to walk the bike up 
hill. No indication is given as to 
where he is going or why. They 
are forgotten. Once he arrives in 
the city he is immediately caught 
up in a cloud of corruption. 

Nabbed while lurking outside 
Gestapo headquarters one even- 
ing, he is hauled in for question- 
ing. During the inlerrogalion by 
the Gestapo he unwittingly in- 
forms on his former school

Later, though, the tortured 
screams of the school teacher stir 
not so much as a twinge of com- 
puction from Lucien. Indeed, Lu-

aware that he has betrayed a con- 

Now Lucien finds himself 
acceptable in ihe pro-German 
Vichy regime's police. One of ihe 
police is a childhood idol of 
Lucien's — a champion bicycle 
racer. If the German side has such 
people then Lucien decides it can't 
be so bad. Other trappings 
succeed in attracting the boy:

Lucien attains a position of 
power. With his supply of guns 
and credential he obtains a new 
feeling of importance. He revels in 
the temporary corruption of 
authority and he pushes his weight 
around with a bashful sullenness. 
One of the policemen with a sar- 
torial eye takes Lucien to a tailor 
lo gel his first suit made. The 
tailor happens to be a rich Jew 
from Paris living in hiding with 
his beautiful daughter: France. In 
blalunt contrast to Lucien's som- 
nolent, ambiguous personality, 
(heirs are active and perspicuous. 
The Jew is an excellent tailor and 
his daughter an accomplished 
pianist. Young Lucien is im- 
mediately attracted to Ihc girl. He 
makes advances to her which are 
blunt yet al the same time win- 
some. France is at once fascinated 
and repulsed by him. The same 
mixed feelings are shared by the 
girl's father. Both want to con- 
demn Lucien yet they have com- 
passion for him, In the end they 
both give themselves up to Lucien. 
France gives herself up to Lucien 
because she has no where else lo 
lurn, Lucien is her only hope of 
escape. France's father, tired of 
hiding out and suffering the 
humiliation of his daughter sleep- 
ing with a hired gun, pays a social 
call on Lucien at the police station 
and is promptly arrested. 

Despite the overt sentimentality 
implied in the name France, the 
movie is meticulously shaded and 
controlled lo bring off an ex- 
tremely sensitive portrayal of this 
young protagonist. The implica- 
tion of the film is that the founda- 
tion for national tragedy is laid 
quietly and is based upon a 
horrifying ease. It is subtly im- 
plied that Lucien is like many of 
those who were in occupied 
France in 1 944. 

Even though Lucien does decide 
in ihe end to flee to Spain with 
France il is loo late. His 
collaboration wiih ihe Germans 
however callow, was basis enough 
lo sentence him lo death. 

This judgement is hard to lake 
because although Lucien is not 
likeable, he is understandable. 
One senses he is just not 
thinking about what he is doing.

Hasty Pudding: Fair Warred 

by Emily Yoffe *77 

Scoop from Miss Emily: 
There seems to be trouble 
ahead for the Warren (hubba- 
hubba) Beally, Michelle (Mama's 
and Papa's) Phillips' romance. 

When asked recently by a 
young female reporter how he was 
bearing up under the challenge of 
monogamy. Beatty responded by 
looking down said reporter's dress 
and fondling her necklace with his 
left hand, while resting his right 
hand lovingly on Ms. Phillips' 

Ms. Phillips, snapping to atten- 
tion, ordered. "Warren, get your 
hands off that girl." Then turning 
to the reporter, with a notable 
absence of good will, "He likes 
monogamy just fine. " 

Warren Beatty was chosen the 
Hasty Pudding Theatrical's Man 
of the Year last week. He was 
awarded the coveted pudding pot 
at the opening night ceremonies of 
the current production of "Put Up 
Your Dukes." 

Beatty is tall, slim, and hard as 
it is to believe, was the hand- 
somest man at Harvard that 

night. When accepting the award 
he expressed relief at seeing the 
pudding pot, because, he claimed 
he had been suffering under the 
delusion that he was to be the 
Harvard Lampoon's man of the 

The peripheral event of the 
evening was the premier of "Put

drag show is set in a fictional 
medieval country. A group of 
royal impersonators, peasant im- 
personators and female imper- 
sonators plot the take-over of the 

After several hours of cases of 
mistaken gender identity, the 
whole arcane mess is resolved to

The show docs serve as a kind 
of catharsis, a year's worth of 
groans are emitted because of 
puns like: 

"Enough of these idle peasan- 
tries." and "It must be caused by 
your minstrel cycle." 

There arc also such gems of 
dialogue as: 

"I fought the Green Knight." 

"Aw, gawain," and: 

"I hope you didn't have v 
heart set on it." 

"I don't care where I sc|

Hardwick: Expansive though! 

by Jackie Coleman T7 

"The ideal woman is thought of 
as creative — but that's not the 
only thing. Intelligent minds — 
female thinkers like Hannah 
Arendt — should be more or as 
much of a model." 

N. Y. Review of Books editor 
and critic Elizabeth Hardwick. 
novelist and short story writer, 
does a sort of "cultural criticism" 
or "impressionistic criticism" that 
is expansive thought. She con- 
siders text, event, societal im- 
plications and the medium of 
whatever she turns lo. "You can 
put anything in a book review" 
might extend to much of what she 
writes. For her drama criticism in 
this style she has won the New- 
man prize. 

"Theater's dead as a form. If 
you rouse yourself to go. you feel 
... beaten down. Acting's so awful 
— there's a terrible lack of control 
of the medium. I like to see the 
classics — the modern classics. I 
wonder if tickets, the commitment 
it lakes to go explains the collapse 
of theater. 

"Movies are a lot more in- 
teresting at this moment. They're 
more like fiction — they move all 
around, have characters. The 
moonlight quality of the movie 
theater, ihe huge screen an 
envelope to pull you in ... you're 
singly caught up in it. Theater's 
more for the mind ... I like the 
language of the stage." 

Despite her interest in film and 
theater, journalism doesn't attract 
her. "I couldn't work for a 
newspaper — I don't want to 
report ihe facts, which I hate. You 
don't perfect your voice on the 
N.Y. Times" 

Her recent collection of 
criticism on women in literature. 
Seduction and Betrayal — why 
did she write it? "All women 
writers are interested in other 
women writers, she answers, you 
look to others who do it, you build 
on others. Its possible to conceive

The perplexi ng question is why 

"With a ten million dollar limit on

And young people — everyone 
agrees — are the best source for 
that type of volunteer. 

Even Scammon agrees that 
although they can't elect anyone 
with their vote, "a group of ac-

There are many theories that 
could be advanced to explain the 
current obsession with the youth 
vote. Some analysts suggest that 
politicians are interested in the 
youth opinion because young peo- 
ple arc like a "weathervanc" — 
they provide an early indication of 
how the winds or trends of general 
political opinion will turn. (You 
might say no politician wants to 
be left slowly twisting in the 

Another possible explanation is 
that since campaigns today are so 
long and exhausting, the can- 
didate and his staff are attracted 
to the enthusiasm that young peo- 
ple are so adept at displaying. 

Scoop Jackson's campaign 
manager. Robert Keefe (who. by 
the way, is certain that young peo- 
ple will flock to Jackson's cam- 
paign in droves as soon as they 
"gain an appreciation of his 
record on the environment, educa- 
tion and civil rights") commented 
lhat he found the enthusiasm of 
young volunteers very 
stimulating. "They're darn handy 
and damn healthy to have 
around!" he exclaimed. 

Perhaps some candidates — 
looking for a political boost — 
believe they can suck away 
enough enthusiasm and energy 
from their young volunteers to 
keep their campaign alive. After 

all, they might reason, the young 
are remarkably naive and trusting 
creatures. They can be put to 
work stuffing envelopes and can- 
vassing neighborhoods until they 
drop from exhaustion. And if a 
few of them become saddened or 
disillusioned, it is no matter. 

Internationally famed Israeli

Kanar's stay in the infamous 
Buchenwald concentration camp, 
his journey to a displaced person's 
camp in Cyprus, his service in the 
armed forces in the Israclian 
Independence War, and many 
other trials and tribulations have 
given this performer a rare insight 
into the human character, and all 
of this shows in his sketches. 

Comedy also runs rampant 
through such numbers as 
"Memories of Charlie Chaplin," 
"Aquarium" — in which his 
facile hands become the many fish

Spom perspective: ty League 
Mary Young 76 Women Will 

Wellesley goes East; 
Cole, Morrison star 

The (radilion-orienled Ivy 
League has two traditions that 
have put its women athletes in fine 
competitive positions. 

The first, of course, is win, win, 
win. It will be a while before the 
Yale-Harvard footbal game is up- 
staged by a women's contest of 
any sort, but you can be sure that 
any of the eight want their girls to 

The second follows closely: 
keep the alumni happy. Not only 
must you admit their sons and 
daughters, says the rule, but you 
must get them on winning teams, 
the kind alums want to watch and 
read about. 

Women's sports in the Ivy 
League appeared to get going in 
the following fashion: Along came 
the women, a talented bunch in 
every case. The usual percentage 
of them were good athletes. Hard- 
ly (he chcerleading types, they 
agitated for their own teams. This 
level of interest produced the 
nucleus of each team. 

You never saw such a prolifera- 
tion of coaches, uniforms and ex- 
pense accounts. After all. if you're 
going to have a tennis or crew 
team, are you going to let it lose 
to another Big Three school? Not 
.1 chance! 

The competitiveness, of course, 
does not reach those proportions. 
II there's ;i team operating out of 
any of these schools, it's simply 
going to be taken care of finan- 
cially. That's certainly nothing 
new . by now it comes pretty easily 
to these schools. 

Good old Title IX came along 
and merely added to these incen- 
tives. The Brown women's basket- 
Ml coach suggest I use Title IX, 
as Brown women apparently had, 
to get Wellesley basketball going. 
I explained thai there was very lit- 
tle discrimination around here. 
"That's too bad." she sym- 
pathized, "Why don't you 
transfer? We've got a good school 
down here ..." 

The big differential between Ivy 
League schools in women's sports 
is not financial. It's probably in 
admissions, or was before the 
women's sports revolution began. 
Princeton must have seen it all 
coming. Admissions several years 
ago found talent in every spori 
and, since it was the fashionable 

thing to do for a few years, the 
talent went to Princeton. 

The Tigresses produced 
national champions or cham- 
pionships in crew, swimming, ten- 
nis and squash in the space of 
three years. It's all very tempting 
— great-looking warm-up suits, 
travel opportunities and coaching. 
One must practically visit the 
campus and get rained on before 

Dartmouth, meanwhile, is get- 
ting burned by the expansion syn- 
drome. The Big Green women 
have the teams, but not the per- 
sonnel to make them all winners. 
So they lose a few games. At least 
they have participation and 

Radcliffe, (sec Seven Sisters 
column, 2/21), got hit by the 
paroxysms of coeducation and got 
some great help from Harvard as 
a result. They are doing well. 

Brown and Cornell are well- 
clothed, (the ultimate indicator), 
and off and running. Pcnn is a big 
school that doesn't seem to be in 
the mainstream of New England 
Ivy League competition, and from 
which little is heard in the area of 
women's sports. They probably 
compete with other Pennsylvania 
schools at a comparable level. 

Columbia's Barnard hasn't 
progressed very far, (see Seven 
Sisters column, 2/21), mainly 
because the place is still more 
Barnard than Columbia. There's 
not much place for Title IX in 
Morningsidc Heights. 

Yale produces solid teams, a 
couple of which are noteworthy. 
The swimming team has taken 
over where the men's team, which 
used to be number one in the East, 
left off. Yale won't let women into 
Morey's, (a restaurant), but 
they've given women letter 
sweaters and allowed women cap- 
tains to pose on the famous fence 
in the basement of Payne Whitney 
gym for the yearbook. Thai's 

In short, the Ivy League 
schools, even if by default, have 
given their female athletes just 
about all the materials they need 
to win. Getting the chance to win, 
fortunately, coincides with being 
equal to male athletes. The Ivy 
League and its female athletes 
have both lucked out. 

Kim Cole '77 and Judy 
Morrison '78 turned in outstan-

placed her sixth nationally. She 
also grabbed seventh in the 200-

22 points for Wellesley. Ms. Cole 
placed I5lh in the 100-yard IM

Though she qualified for the 
one-meter diving finals, Judy 
Morrison was overcome by a 
stomach bug and could not finish 
the event Friday. "I felt sick 
before I started diving," Ms. 
Morrison said, though she tried 
hard to avoid disappointment in 
her best event, the one-meter. 

Saturday saw coach Sue Ten- 
dy's ace diver revived, and she 
easily qualified and grabbed 
seventh in the finals of the three-

Hoopwomen bomb Jackson 

The varsity basketball team 
bombed Jackson with their 
highest offensive output of the 
year last Wednesday to earn a 
solid 55-42 victory and give coach 
Mayrene Earle her first Wellesley 
basketball victory. 

Jackson was never able to find a 
defense that contained the fired- 
up Wellesley team. The Big Blue 
oulpassed zone and outran man- 
to-man defenses to rack up a 32- 
20 halftime lead, and never let up, 
outscoring the Tufts team 23-22 
Ihe rest of the way. 

Every Wellesley player scored 
in a game that was not as easy as 
the score indicates. Jackson made 
many attempts to get back into 
Ihe game with its physical style of

Kim, Judy off to Nationals! 

Some handsomely-sized financial awards have put Kim 
Cole 77 and Judy Morrison '78 over the hump. They've 
decided to go to the AIAW National Swimming and Diving 
Championships next weekend at Arizona State University, 
Tempe. Arizona. 

The Sports Association last Monday voted to allocate 
SI 00 lo each swimmer, adding lo the SI 00 each previously 
awarded by the physical education department, (see last 
week's siory, this page), Judy Morrison obtained SI 25 from 
Students Aid and a $25 interest-free loan lo leave her only 
S50 short of the $400 goal, which includes $320 air fare 
alone. Kim Cole won unprecedented approval from SOFC 
for an on-campus campaign, and has appealed to President 
Newell for funds from the President's Discretionary Fund. 

Sports Association allocates 
For travel, warm-ups, defense 

The Sporls Association voted 
last Monday to allocate a total of 
S575 for a variety of purposes, in- 
cluding S200 toward sending Kim 
Cole '77 and Judy Morrison '78 lo 
the Swimming and Diving 
National Championships next 
weekend, and S50 to subsidize the 
college's new self-defense course 

The allocation, which was made 
possible by the dissolution of the 
ski team and its S585 budget, also 
included the purchase of 15 warm- 
up suits at a cost of S270 without 
lettering. The warm-up suits can 
be used by the swimming, basket- 
ball, field hockey, lacrosse, tennis, 
squash, and crew teams. Lettering 
for the suits was also provided for 
at a cost of SI 5. 

One set of foul-weather gear. 
including one lop and one bottom, 
was also included, at a cost of 

Discussion had touched on un- 
iforms to serve several sporls, fen- 
cing knickers and crew shins 
Uniforms were deemed less im- 
portant than warm-ups. while ihe 
latter two requests were 
withdrawn in favor of warm-up 

Three of Ihe warm-up suits will 
be purchased out of an $80 un- 

iform allotment presently in the 

The Sports Association met 
Monday lo continue discussion of 
Ihe results of the student question- 

play but was rewarded with 2i 
fouls and many missed shots. 

Ms. Earle. obviously pleased 
said she'd never seen all rive 
players have a good night on ihe 
same nighl. Actually, there were 
nine who kept the Wellesley five 

The game's highest offensive 
output came from Mary Young 
'76, who threw in 22 points, 14 of 
them in the first half. Kate Riepe 
'76 made 7 points, and 6 points 
each were contributed by Karco 
Bell. Nancy Andrews and Connie 
Holmberg. all freshmen. Helen 
Fremont '78, ace defensive guard 
who also runs the offense, scored 
4 points and got valuable resting 
time when Sue Jackson '77 ably 
did Ihe job. Two more Wellesley 
field goals came from Donna Dr- 
varic '77 and Betsy Brinkley '78. 

The Wellesley jayvec team once 
again did Ms. Earle proud, 
though they lost. Getting whipped 
to the tune of 34r4 in the first half, 
they came back to score 19 points 
in the second half and hold 
Jackson below 60 for a 58-23 
score, coming through with Ms 
Earle's directives both offensive^, 
and defensively. 

Amy Thurmond '78 led 
Wellesley with 8 points, followed 
by Betsy Hollon '75 with 6 poinls. 
Marvelle Dixon '77 and Vicki 
Vidargas '77 scored 4 apiece and 
Robin Pano '78 added I point. 
Susan Jackson '78 and Allison 
Hamm '78 also contributed lo ihe 
fine showing.
